Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs) consider matters connected with the formulation, development, monitoring and review of policy for Galway City Council. The membership of SPCs is made up of City Councillors and external representatives from local sectoral interests. Following the Local Elections, a new scheme is now proposed for the next five years.

The five Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs) proposed cover the following areas of activity:
1. Housing & Social Inclusion
2. Planning
3. Economic, Community & Cultural Development
4. Transportation
5. Climate Action, Environment, Recreation and Amenity

Following the adoption of the SPC Scheme by Galway City Council, the nomination of Sectoral representatives to the Strategic Policy Committees will be undertaken.
